Far Infrared Sauna experience and benefits @Sucess Therapeutic


Thanks to a fellow blogger, I have won a giveaway for a FIR sauna session with Ryan.  We tried the home sauna setup at Success Therapeutic.

Interesting enough, they also own Pinang Suri Wellness center in Institut Jantung Negara.

What's FIR sauna?
Conventional sauna uses heat generated from steam to warm the air then the body. Sonne FIR uses part of the wavelength of sunlight to create radiant heat that then warm the body. This means that the surrounding air is not heated. FIR sauna also penetrates the skin into 1.5 inches deep which also claims to duplicate the healthy frequency of cells.

There's lots of health claims for FIR sauna which can be found from Success Therapeutic and mayo clinic websites.


Generally speaking, the evidence is not very strong but there's no harm found from the therapy. So it's safe to try :)

Before the session, we were invited to hydrate ourselves and we are also allowed to drink fluids during the session. We could even read magazine or browse our phone!

After setting the unit to 30 minutes, we stepped into the sauna and unwind. There's no need to preheat the unit and there's no suffocating steam heat. After about 10 minutes, we started to sweat. In the last 5 to 10 minutes, we could actually feel our heart speeding up. And it's equivalent to a cardio exercise.

The sweat dried up pretty quickly and our body didn't feel sticky afterwards. Really enjoyed the experience overall.

If you really like FIR sauna, you can install one of these units at home! Or else you can just visit their wellness center at IJN.


This is their standard unit which fits 2 person.

The corner unit which fits 2 to 3 people. It costs around RM20k per unit though.

Verdict: we will definitely try FIR sauna again. But probably won't install one at home haha.
